De 2e update van Talitha, over het wel en wee van ‘onze’ kinderen op straat.
Working on formal sector is rare for children in street situations. As we know, most of children in street situations didn’t have card identity. Meanwhile in Indonesia, one of requirement to apply in formal sector is should have card identity. That’s why, most of children in street situations work on informal sector such as street vendors, parking attendant, angklung, busker, etc.
Work in sector formal take more risky than working on formal sector. They can easily being busted by government apparatus. Jogja have local regulation which is concern to Prohibit people who work on the street. In 2015, 12 children who work as angklung’ busker get busted. They receive psychical abuse and also long trauma. One of the support that Harapan Fian can provide is making alternative work. It will give them alternative income so they do not depend on the street for living.
